Transport minister: Fare increases necessary to deliver rail upgrades

Theresa Villiers, transport minister, tells the Today programme that fare increases are necessary to deliver the government's rail upgrades:

"We need to deliver our programme of rail upgrades to deliver improvements and relieve overcrowding.

"It is essential that we deliver this programme of rail investments, it's the biggest, probably, since the Victorian era.

"I'm afraid we do have to ask passengers to pay a little more for the next three years."
